"  Impeccable artists of unerring forms, Magician builders of sound and rhythmic words, Wind-haired Gandharvas chanted to the ear The odes that shape the universal thought, The lines that tear the veil from Deity's face, The rhythms that bring the sounds of wisdom's sea   "
                                                                                                 Sri Aurobindo (Savitri, Book XI, Canto 1)

Press Review

« The young composer Igor Wakhevitch’s music crowns, surrounds and nourrishes the choreography. With him, singing exercices and piano harmony are given renewed life, the sound of brass instruments blend with children’s tears, the display of raging elements evoke an inferno from which logic escapes »

Gilberte Cournand
« LE PARISIEN LIBÉRÉ »

« What a fascinating score Igor Wakhevitch has composed ! Beside it sets a framework to Carolyn Carlson’s show and enhance it with an element of space and detachement »

« There is no mortality. It is only the Immortal who can die ; the mortal could neither be born nor perish. There is nothing finite. It is only the Infinite who can make for Himself limits ; the finite can have no beginning nor end, for the very act of conceiving its beginning & end declares its infinity »

Teental Recitals

CONCEPT :
« TEENTAL RECITALS »
was conceived by Igor Wakhevitch, an extremely talented composer and pianist himself who has been the recipient of numerous awards of the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris (Paris National High Conservatory of Music and Dance).

TEENTAL RECITALS (The House of Indian Classical Music) offers a complete experience woven around the rich musical traditions of India (hindustani and carnatic) and a sense of kinship and belonging amongst the Indian classical musicians. « TEENTAL RECITALS » attempts to pay tribute to this deep­rooted culture that has been passed over from generation to generation since thousands of years and try to provide the best environment possible to fulfill the artist's needs, as well as their expectations.

Over the years « TEENTAL RECITALS » had the privilege to be associated to the « five stars » recitals of the most famous musicians of India in many european countries : legendary maestros, as Ustad Amjad Ali Khan, Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia, Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma, Ustad Rashid Khan, Pandit Ajoy Chakrabarty, the Gundecha Brothers, Pandit Rajan and Sajan Misra, Ustad Zakir Hussain, Pandit Ulhas Kashalkar. Amongst the best classical musicians of the new generation, TEENTAL RECITALS features artists of already great fame and talent and having already started a very promising international career : Shashank, Kaushiki Chakrabarty, Niladri Kumar, Purbayan Chatterjee, Raul Sharma, Subhra Guha, Rakesh Chaurasia, « The Sacred Drums of India » directed by Pandit Subhankar Banerjee with the eminent participation of Pandit Satish Kumar Patri, the great mridangam maestro.

Igor Wakhevitch (Igor-ji) is also well known for his numerous compositions for contemporary dance forms choreographed by famous western dancers as Carolyn Carlson, Rina Schenfeld, Olivier Patey, Peter Morin, Norbert Schmucki, Jean­Marc Torrès, Jean-Christophe Paré, Ileana Citaristi (Odissi), Uttara Coorlawala, Paolo Peirera, etc. He has lived in India for nearly thirty years and considers it his home and mother-land, the cradle of his soul. Igor Wakhevitch is also the composer of « Étre Dieu » (To Be God), the opera-poem in six parts of the genius Spanish painter, Salvador Dali. This unique masterpiece of music in which the legendary painter of the surrealism is acting and plays its own character has been recorded in the EMI studios in Paris.
